As I mentioned in my last post, last night I tried getting Taco Bell delivery. This included a new item: Cap’n Crunch Delights.
Cap’n Crunch Delights are nearly the same thing as Taco Bell’s Cinnabon Delights. The difference is that the dough has a slight Crunchberry flavor. (If you aren’t familiar with Crunchberry cereal, it’s kind of but not quite like strawberry flavor.) And instead of being dusted with cinnamon-sugar, it’s dusted with Cap’n Crunch and Crunchberries. The icing/interior goo is the same.
I’ve previously said that Taco Bell Cinnabon Delights are the best dessert item you can get at any major fast-food chain. So what do I think of this variant of them? They’re amazingly good, but not quite as good as Cinnabon Delights. The crunchberry tinge to the dough is interesting, but the Cap’n Crunch dust on the exterior adds less than the cinnamon-sugar.
These are only available for a limited time, so I will keep ordering them while I can get one. But if Taco Bell is going to choose one goo-filled sweet ball to keep, I’m glad it’s the Cinnabon Delights.
Each Cap’n Crunch Delight is 85 calories, compared to 80 calories for a Cinnabon Delight.
I didn’t think to take a picture of them, so I have to pull one off their website. I’d say this is a fairly accurate representation of what the real life items look like, except that in reality there isn’t quite as much delicious goo in the center.
